Potting Shed | Teresa Smiles-Gilliam

It comes as not surprise that this beautiful outdoor space houses a wonderful potting shed whose entry embraces a vintage door perfectly suited for the overall landscape design.

Although it took years for the landscape to mature it was worth the wait and is enjoyed year round because of its west coast location. A perfect backyard to come home to everyday!
